4 cops shot, suspect dead after Calif. traffic stop
Police say suspect behind two separate shootings involving officers
OAKLAND, Calif. - Four officers were in critical condition and a suspect dead on Saturday after gunfire at a traffic stop led to a massive manhunt that ended in a shootout, police said.
Two officers were shot in the first incident just after 1 p.m. after they stopped the suspect's vehicle in east Oakland, said Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason.
The suspect fled the scene on foot into a nearby neighborhood, police said, leading to an intense manhunt by dozens of Oakland police, California Highway Patrol officers and Alameda County sheriff deputies.
Streets were roped off and an entire area of east Oakland shut to traffic.

I left because of PC crap...anybody got an update?
“OK, Who takes bets it`s an illegal alien?”
Too early to tell and not enough details regarding the suspect
who has been identified.
The deceased suspect will probably end up being one of the gangbangers in Oakland.
OK, How many have been shot in a traffic stop....thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my gosh. That is so sad!
Seriously, It's been a while since I've been there so I guess it's changed.
I guess the infestation of gangs is just about everywhere in these United States and we have no one to blame but the group in DC. This crap (for lack of a better word) goes on daily in our country and so what are the people pissed off about? 150 million in bonuses.
I’m so sorry!
If you want to be a jerk, I can’t stop you. I thought my request was respectful and reasonable.
I am a police officer here in CA, and this is hitting hard, especially since I have knowledge I can’t share here.
when’s the last time you heard of an Islamic man going one-on-one with another man?
Now if a bunch of pre-schooler’s were shot and killed you might have a point.
We could both be right
oakland tribune has it
THREE OFFICERS DEAD, SUSPECT KILLED IN EAST OAKLAND GUN BATTLES
OAKLAND Three Oakland police officers were shot to death, one in is critically injured in two separate incidents involving one suspect near the Eastmont police substation this afternoon, a police spokesperson said.
Initial reports from law enforcement sources had stated that four officers were killed. However, police revised that statement a short time ago.
The first shooting happened in the 7400 block of MacArthur Boulevard about 1:16 p.m. today when two motorcycle officers were wounded. What led to the shooting was not immediately known.
About 3:20 p.m., two more police officers were wounded in an exchange of gunfire with the suspect while trying to take him into custody in the 2700 block of 74th Avenue. That suspect was shot and killed.
“Four Oakland Police Officers Shot and Killed”
SNIPPET: “(OAKLAND - KGO RADIO) Four Oakland police officers have died as a result of their injuries after they were shot by one gunman this afternoon in two separate incidents.”
I try not to speculate, It`s the MO that I see.
Oakland’s new tactics on crime appear to help

or maybe not
Four cops dead and all we care about here is what we perceive was police brutality at the BART station in the very same Oakland three months ago. Don’t forget those ugly threads by the knowitalls who saw some cellphone videos and were ready to indict the police.
It’s fortunate that the perp died. At least Hollywood luminaries are now deprived of a “Cause Celebre.”
Three Oakland police officers killed, one critically wounded after traffic stop, shootout
“I went over to one officer and saw he was bleeding from his helmet pretty bad,” he said. “The other officer was laying motionless.”
He said the officer lying near a car had two gun shot bullets near in his face. One bullet was lodged in his jaw and the other in his neck.
The man proceeded to give the officer CPR until police arrived on the scene, he said.
Oakland is a very dangerous place with or without the gangs. There's a whole lot of crime goin on there. I've had the misfortune to be there numerous times over the last few years.
The fact the ‘suspect’ is now a corpse without a trial among peers does not bother me.
About 100 officers were gathered outside the entrance to the hospital’s emergency room, waiting desperately for information about their wounded friends and colleagues. Some of them were wearing SWAT gear, while others were wearing baseball jerseys after having raced from a game.
